    Recipe Introduction

    Fresh asparagus stars along with bacon, onion and Swiss cheese in this hearty quiche.

    List of Ingredients

    10 bacon strips, diced
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
    1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
    3 large eggs
    1/2 cup half-and-half cream


    In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In the drippings, sauté onion until browned; drain.

    Cut eight asparagus spears into 4-in.-long spears for garnish. Cut remaining asparagus into 1-in. pieces. In a saucepan, cook all of the asparagus in a small amount of boiling water until crisp-tender; drain.

    In a bowl, toss the bacon, onion, asparagus pieces, cheese, flour, salt and pepper. Pour into pastry shell. In a bowl, beat eggs and cream; pour over bacon mixture. Top with asparagus spears, if desired (I don’t do this). Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and crust is golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
